Great story
24 April 2014 | by knightwraithSee all my reviews

This is a great story. The story keeps the same feel as the BTAS episode of Heart of Ice with a few new elements added in to solidify the hate relationship between Mr. Freeze and the Penguin shown in Arkham City. Although I am a Joker and Harley Quinn fan this DLC is far more interesting than the Harley's Revenge DLC and I love the new cold suit Batman wears in this adventure. The only thing that kept me from giving this story a 9 was its length. I would also liked to have seen Victor's transformation as a surveillance video after the crime scene investigation rather than just a fuzzy playback in detective mode. Mr. Freeze in my opinion has the most tragic back story.
